Has anybody heard about a treatment where the gastric cancer has spread from the stomach to the peritoneum. The one I am wondering about is where they do the surgery remove the tumor and and tumors they can outside the stomach and then perform what they call Hyperthermic intraoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy. This is where they flush the peritoneal cavity with a heated chemo for 90 minutes right after the surgery. If you have any information let me know. Thanks
